They say, that there will come a time in every woman's life, where she must make a decision. She must choose between her face or her behind, "little tush" or arse, the name just depends on where you come from. This is a choice not to be taken lightly, as it is a very difficult one.. and no I do not think you can have both. You can be fit and strong and maybe carrying a little extra padding, than say you did in your twenties. You cannot however, in my opinion, keep your face and remain model thin..
So I have chosen the face...
This may just prove to be my downfall, as when asked for his ambitions for 2011, my husband replied "A lean, fit and sinewy wife"...
Not that I am even remotely chubby, I do not think anyone under a UK12 (US8) can be considered over weight, I am a perfect size 10.
Of course, I have to say perfect...
I used to be a lot thinner and a lot fitter, I have given up on the dieting part, as I said I have chosen to keep my face, but I need to get back into the gym ..
Otherwise his ambition will go unfulfilled, although I do keep reminding him that I am a far more comfortable shag.. without sharp corners.
A perfect example of the physique type, desired here
... I wonder what side she will choose in the future?
The alternative, as in him finding a younger, leaner and sinewy partner, I can assure you would prove far too expensive and plus I do love to be fitter. Not only am I stronger and more co-ordinated, but I feel a damn sight sexier too. Clothing wise too there will be no need to replace any favourites, as I never really vary in size, just in how I fill it.
Facially, I am a Botox devotee and will continue to stretch and freeze those muscles until I am frozen in the ground myself. Not only is it cosmetically beneficial, it is also wonderful for migraine sufferers.
The lovely Gordon Ramsay
Why not use everything that is available to you, both men and women. There was a huge uproar about Gordon Ramsay and his hair £30000 hair transplant, but I cannot understand why. I find men with, or without hair equally attractive, as I think sex appeal is something that oozes from within. I also do understand, that if you are appearing on television and constantly having your photograph taken, a full head of hair does make you appear younger. So as long as he can afford to do it along with his fillers and Botox, I say "Go for it Gordon"
Tracy Anderson.. my ideal physique
... The trainer responsible for Madonna's physique,
looking wonderful herself
Now there are the exceptions to the rule, the beautiful people of Hollywood and the rich list sector, that have all the worlds leading plastic surgeons at their finger tips...
Such as Madonna, she has not really had to choose. Her body, in my opinion is a work of art.. a very selfish work of art, as one can only imagine the hours that she must spend keeping it so. We read many an article about the trainer who is responsible for this, but really it has to be Madonna herself, who dedicates the hours for training.
I am using Madonna as an example as I am closer to her age than either of the two beauties above, and anyone who has reached their mid to late forties will know that around about the age of 46 it all starts becoming a lot harder to look good and everything feels as though it is falling apart.
So we have the amazing Madonna look
... and then "The Ugly shot"
Personally I do not find this as offensive as some, I think it is a brilliant piece of paparzzi work, where she is tensing her arms. Anyone with low body fat levels has a vein issue, you also get it in your hands and feet as you mature, shall we say rather than age..
What fascinates me, and is rarely commented on compared to her body fat, is the amount of work she has very successfully had done. We can all critisise and say that she has the money and opportunity to have a great plastic surgeon, but it is still a huge gamble as to how you will turn out..
I think Madonna has had two lifts, by the way I am no expert, just a keen observer of ageing women so that I can learn from them.
Pre Facelift, boobs also look lower too...
Madonna .. After Facelift one, circa 2005
This would have been around the time of Confessions on a Dance floor album, she suddenly appeared on our screens with a new fresher look and dramatic weight loss.
Personally this is where I think she looks best, apart from the hair colour being softer, she just looks fresher, rather than having a "done" look.

Here I think she may have had a second lift, just before her 50th birthday, as that was when we all started to see a huge difference in her face, maybe its just her cheeks but I think she has also had work done to her eyes....
May I please just repeat, these are all only my own observations and opinions.
So we are back to the beginning...
Face or Fanny? Our American compatriots would say..
I still think face, but I am going to work on the body, I will keep you informed as to how I get along. I have been in the gym once since September due to chronic injuries, and this was last Sunday. So far, apart from being unable to even squat on the loo properly, for the past two days, as my muscles were seizing up so badly from shock, I am feeling almost ready to start session two. My main problem, which affects all results is my addiction for Absolut .. I am trying to restrict its intake to weekends only...Hic
